Our Founding Story
The Family Hospital Systems’ founder was frustrated by the lack of resources available to provide the kind of personalized, superior care he envisioned when becoming a doctor. He was passionate about creating a better patient experience. When the opportunity presented itself to operate the new model of a freestanding emergency department, our founder jumped at the chance. This facility would offer physicians the chance to change how emergency medical care is delivered and practiced. Family Hospital Systems (FHS) founder started Family Emergency Room (FER) in 2013 and opened the company’s first free-standing emergency room in Cedar Park, Texas. The model of great quality care at reasonable prices proved to be very successful, and three more free-standing emergency rooms were opened in the greater-Austin area.
After the success of the free-standing emergency rooms with the community, FER realized the same level of care could be offered for hospitals and beyond. FHS was born with the opening the company’s first hospital in Austin: Family Emergency Hospital at Lake Travis. Additionally, FHS has recently introduced the company’s first medical/surgical hospital, Brushy Creek Family Hospital, located in the greater Austin area suburb of Round Rock.
FHS has continued to expand with out of state hospitals in Millard, NE — Millard Family Hospital.
There are plans for additional hospitals in Nebraska during the year of 2020.
